BFFL: Vampire Weekend and Festival Crashers

@AndyShore Today has been a long day of recovery from Phish Festival 8. It was a truly incredible weekend, and one I will finish telling you all about tomorrow. Being sleep deprived, and having to fight LA traffic to get two friends to the airport today made me rather unproductive. At some point this afternoon, I saw that the Ice Cream Man tweeted asking for links for the Phish shows. I forwarded them to him, having just been sent the download links myself. That’s where this story gets interesting.

Later this evening, I saw that the Ice Cream Man responded to me, thanking me for the links. He said he was currently downloading the shows and intended to give them to Vampire Weekend tonight. Yes, that’s right. Though there is a middle man involved, I gave Vampire Weekend the Festival 8 shows today.

Usually that’s where the story ends. I brag about being so on top of the music scene, that I’m actually giving shows to Vampire Weekend. I can just picture how giddy Ezra Koenig will be listening to Exile on Main Street. In the movie version, the story doesn’t end there.

Vampire Weekend finds out it was Festival Crashers who got them the shows. They check out the site, and decide they love what we’re doing. Zack and I become longtime friends with the band. When they’re the biggest band since the Beatles,we will write their autobiography, Glen Gass will use our book to teach the Vampire Weekend class at Indiana (I realize by that time he’d be too old to teach, but this is a movie we’re talking about.) My roommate and I will make music videos for them that will be spoken in the same breath as “Thriller” and “Smack My B*tch Up.” Story book ending.

“You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.”

    I love this. I know the last several parts are fantasy, but did they check out the site/can we make them? We’ve covered VW a ton.
